    My School is.... Untity Elementary School. I love this school because the teachers are loving caring kind and they cater to the individual needs of each student instead of as a whole. I really like that they have equipment to assist children with hearing impairments and keep us parents informed of everything.

    This school has some the most caring teachers. Many teachers have created after school programs for reading and math club.

    I love this school! You couldn't ask for a better principal I have never seen anyone connect with kids the way he does. The teachers and staff at Unity are very understanding and keep the parents well informed about their childs education. I would never send my kids anywhere else.

    This school is run by one of the finest principals I've known. He is firm but fair and the kids not only respond to him they respect him.
